are given. that's explicitly prohibited in the law. let's go back to what governor romney indicated, under his plan he would be able to cover people with preexisting conditions. well, actually, governor, that isn't what your plan does. what your plan does is to duplicate what's already the law, which says if you are out of health insurance for three months, then you can end up getting continuous coverage, and insurance company can't deny you if it has been under 90 days. but that's already the law. and that doesn't help the millions of people out there with preexisting conditions. there is a reason why governor romney set up the plan that he did in massachusetts. it wasn't a government takeover of health care, it was the largest expansion of private insurance, but what it does say is that insurers, you have to take everybody. that also means you have more customers. but when governor romney says he'll replace it with something, but can't detail how it will be, in fact, replaced, and the reason he set up the system he did in massachusetts because there isn't a better way of dealing with the
they gather the raw data. legitimate questions, but there are also conspiracy theories. the law school examiners, i don't think bls cooked numbers. i think people lied about getting jobs. that would have the same effect. there is no evidence of that. the bls is constantly trying to get it right. sometimes it helps the incumbent president, sometimes not. here's what eric erickson tweeted. quote, i don't think it's healthy to indicate that the jobs numbers are cooked. a best-selling author and currently writes a blog with his wife susie. so do you really believe that people in the obama campaign, the chicago guy that you tweeted about, that they cooked the numbers? >> anderson, last night before these numbers came out, i tweeted, i wonder what the assumptions will be tomorrow. because last month, the assumptions were that participation rate dropped to the lowest level since jimmy connor. that means people quit looking for work so they don't count. there are so many assumptions that one makes coming into these numbers. you pointed out very accurately that they polled 60,000 people out of
decisions about what treatments are given. that's explicitly prohibited in the law. but let's go back to what governor romney indicated. under his plan he would be able to cover people with preexisting conditions. actually, governor, that isn't what your plan does. what your plan does is to duplicate what's already the law. which says if you are on health insurance for three months, then you can end up getting continuous coverage. and an insurance company can't deny you if it's been under 90 days. but that's already the law. and that doesn't help the millions of people out there with preexisting conditions. there's a reason why governor romney set up the plan that he did in massachusetts. it wasn't a government takeover of health care. it was the largest expansion of private insurance. but what it does say is, insurers, you've got to take everybody. now, that also means that you've got more customers. but when governor romney says that he'll replace it with something but can't detail how it will be, in fact, replaced, and the reason he set up the system he did in massachusetts is beca
